A couple from Fiji is afraid to open the legal case in connection with hate crime attack against them. The have a fear to become targets of homophobic villains who might just kill them one day. Discriminating LGBT in Fiji is illegal since 2013. But the country’s PM himself is known for radically homophobic remarks and sexual minorities are strictly unwelcomed by the local society, so the men believe to be in danger.
“While we were walking towards the road, two teenage boys approached us, smiling,” they said? They made some sexually subjective comments towards us. We ignored them and continued to flag down a cab and all of a sudden one of them punched my friend. When he went to try and stop the attack, the same assailant pushed him to the ground. My lips were cut and bleeding.”
